If I was given a vote for the most beautiful place in Scotland it would go to the area around Huisinis (spelling seems to vary so also Hushnish/Hushinish).
We’ve been up most of the hills near Huisinis and personally I think that Traigh Mheilein opposite the island of Scarp is the best beach in the Hebrides.
Thus, it would be a major oversight not to visit during our trip. We got up well slept at the hostel at Drinishader and drove round to Huisinis. A new building was going up replacing the old toilet block with a new building, complete with public toilets and showers.
Parked at the north side near the jetty as the usual spots were closed for the building work.
We decided to have a wander round the peninsula to the SW of the houses as we’d never looked around that area.
Had a bite to eat at the far end of the peninsula before heading back to the car to pick up the camping packs.
We wandered along the beach to Rubh an Tighe where there is an excellent area to camp.
Stayed up until the sun set, backlighting the lighthouse on Eilean Mor of the Flannan Isles.
Very lazy, but why go to an effort when all of that is on offer?
